I recently bought a home and the washer and dryer came with it. I've noticed that the door on the washer is sagging and there is a crack of the white plastic frame by the hinge of the door creeping out towards the front. It doesn't look like the hinge is bad but I am not sure could the frame being cracked cause the door to sag?
Answer Hi Dan. First of all, use a torpedo level on the top and make sure that it is level front to back and side to side. If it is cocked it will misaligned the striker and wear out the door latch. This may be the cause of the door frame cracking as well. Someone may have leaned on it too hard while removing clothes and started the crack. The door frame is part # 134550700. The door hinge is part # 134550800. If the hinge is loose as you test from lifting the door up and down slightly. Thank you.
The door is sagging causing the door strike to keep breaking. I took the door apart and saw 2 small plastic tabs broken off from the door where the top and bottom of the hinge attaches. The tabs are part of the door. I don't want to keep replacing the strike. Any suggestions for a fix? Also, is there an accessible filter for this machine?
Answer Hi John. The door hinge part # 134550800 has 2-plastic bushings that engage the door inner panel part # 134550500. The door strike is part # 134456600. It is a floating mount strike . The screws are tight but the strike can move a little up or down. Make sure the unit is level front to back and side to side with each leg lock nut is tight up against the base of the unit. So your unit will not settle and allow the door to have these issues. Tell users to be careful of this issue. Thank You.
This frame is two separate parts or two part numbers?
Answer Hello Tony! The frame 134550700 is the inner door frame only. What parts are you needing? Thanks!
